Professor of Economics
Perry G. Mehrling, Professor of Economics, joined the faculty of Barnard in 1987. He has also held visiting positions at the Sloan School of Management at MIT, Boston University, Paris X, University of Nice, and Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna.
Professor Mehrling's research focuses on the foundations of monetary economics and the history and applications of monetary economics and finance. He aims to develop a theory of money that takes as its starting point the inside credit character of modern money, in order to integrate monetary economics with modern finance, and so contribute to an alternative money theoretical basis for macroeconomics.
Professor Mehrling is currently a member of the Academic Council of the Institute for New Economic Thinking, editorial board member of Oeconomia, and faculty member of Columbia University's Committee on Global Thought.
